Three Wishes is the second video in the Barney & the Backyard Gang series, originally released on January 27, 1989.


The Backyard Gang are bored on a Saturday with nothing to do. That is, until they use their imaginations to bring Barney to life. When they tell Barney their problem, he acts like a genie and gives them three wishes to go anywhere they would want to go in their imagination. Using their imaginations, they go to places like a fun park, the Moon in outer space, and even a fun-filled animal farm. But when Barney leaves, the kids learn from Mom that "friends are forever, whenever they're make-believe".

  • During the fun park scene, the song, "The More We Get Together" was used as an underscore.
  • In the original release of this video, after Michael, Amy and their mom go inside the house and before the end credits started, "The End" is shown. This sequence was edited out on later releases. This title card could mean this is the final video in the original trilogy.
  • This is the very first home video to feature the regular version of The Lyons Group logo music, even though some copies have the version from The Backyard Show.
  • This is also the first home video to feature the Barney Fan Club ad.
  • Due to the blue screen effects, Barney sometimes appears to be violet-blue or almost grayish in color
  • Behind-the-scenes footage of the jump rope scene appeared in the Best of Barney special feature Barney's Favorite Memories.
  • This is the first episode in which the "Shimbaree, Shimbarah" magic words are being used.
  • Black outlines are seen on Barney and the kids during the Fun Park scene
